The Guarded Gate: Remembering Breonna & the Role of Race, Gender and Real Estate in Creating More Equitable Communities

Date September 23, 2021
Location Zoom
Time Noon - 2 PM (ET)

Joint Program with HAND, WCCD and CREW DC

Nearly a year and a half after the murder of Breonna Taylor, so much in our world has changed, and yet much has remained the same. As we continue to reckon with race in our country, and navigate a just and equitable recovery from the pandemic, we must also consider the role of real estate and community development. CREW DC, Housing Association of Nonprofit Developers (HAND) and Women of Color in Community Development (WCCD) are pleased to present The Guarded Gate: Remembering Breonna & the Role of Race, Gender and Real Estate in Creating More Equitable Communities.

This session is designed to inspire, empower and challenge all of us who are engaged in the movement to create safe, equitable, and inclusive environments. The opening presentation will ground our discussion with a history of gatekeeping and how it has impacted Black women and families. A dynamic panel discussion will follow, featuring industry leaders representing real estate development, property management, financial intermediaries and community engagement. Join us as we examine the systems and policies that got us here, and consider how each of us can work to dismantle inequities from where we sit.
